    Question 'He is circulating all the time with members of Congress'

    Hello,

    The following appeared in the Yahoo news story Freddie Mac hired Gingrich as it reshaped strategy.


    Weber said someone like Gingrich could provide an important service without lobbying.
    "I wouldn't ask him to pick up the phone (to call a member of Congress), because that is really not necessary. He is circulating all the time with members of Congress," said Weber, who is supporting Mitt Romney in this year's race for the Republican presidential nomination.
    Should it be 'circulating among(st?)', or is 'circulating with' the same? When I googled for 'circulating with', the results showed circulating bills with presidents, where the 'with' is referring to the US Presidents on the US currency. Or does the sentence (in red) above mean - he was circulating (moving around) wherever the members of Congress were moving about?

    Thank you

    When a person "circulates" with people, it means that person hangs out with or has social or business dealings with that certain group of people.
